Finished - Heat Wave, sunflowers

15x22 on 140 lb cold press paper as described in preceding posts.  As we are now in our 3rd week of triple digit temps, I thought its title was justified.  Let me know what you think!

Thanks all. My replies are not visible so hope this will be. Liana, I do not usually do glazes, only direct painting with one application the value or color I want it to be, then leave it alone. I do use small brushes for small areas but use 1 inch flat for the most part.
